In the third round of the Libertadores Cup, Emelec will face Palmeiras. Brazil's strongest team is deservedly regarded as the favorite to play. Although Emelec shouldn't be written off either, this team is in good form and performs well at home.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
In the national championship, Emelec shared points with Deportivo Cuenca and Kumbaya, as well as victories over Aucas and 9 de Octubre Fútbol Club. As a result, after ten rounds played in the Ecuadorian championship, Emelec sits in third place, four points behind leading Barcelona. By the way, Emelec's home statistics are the best in the division, although the home side has played more matches than their nearest rivals. In the Libertadores Cup, Emelec played two games, which ended in draws, against Independiente Petrolero and Deportivo Tachira.
Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras
Palmeiras, despite their status, already has problems in Brazil's Serie A. Before the start of the 4th round of the championship, the Greens are only in eighth place.
However, the Serie A season has just begun, so we doubt the coaching staff is too worried about that. There is a sense that the Sao Paulo side is more concerned with making sure they make the playoffs in the Libertadores Cup as soon as possible. They will then turn their full attention to the domestic tournament. In the Libertadores Cup, Palmeiras have two huge victories over Deportivo Tachira 4:0 and Independiente Petrolero 8:1.
Expert Betting Tips
Palmeiras still lacks stability at the start of the season, but the Greens still have enough spirit for the Libertadores Cup games, and we think there will be enough for at least a couple of games. In case of two wins over Emelec, the Sao Paulo club seems to guarantee a place in the play-offs and will be able to concentrate on the domestic tournaments fully. Our first bet is W2.
After two defeats in the Libertadores Cup, we doubt that Palmeiras will feel sorry for Emelec in their home game. On the contrary, we believe that the Greens would not mind getting a solid win in Ecuador, for example, with a score of 1:3.
